    Maybe we can get some kind of HRR thing set up for this Fanboy movie if possible.

    would, could, maybe be fun.

    Personally, i'm not getting dressed up for this thing.

    I've already committed to trooping at Thad's gig earlier that day, Saturday, at Game-on for Force Unleashed that he posted on the GT's boards sometime ago.

    If FanBoys shows, i'm just seeing the movie, hopefully with a belly full of 5 Guys burger & fries![face_cow]

    I've been hearing Sept. 19 is a limited release?

    November 26 is the date set for the 'wider' release?

    If Fanboys plays at the Gallery of Military Circle, our friend Jim says he'll try his best to get us in there. No promises. If necessary, some of us will dress up to help the group get in for free, possibly. It's entirely up to management as to whether they give us free passes.

    Either way, let's shoot for a mid-afternoon showing on February 7 (Saturday) to attend. Non-canon is most welcome if you plan on dressing up, but in the end, it's entirely up to you.

    Personally, I don't really care if I spend a few bucks to see the movie, but for the fun factor, I'll do what I can to assist the group.

    I've added this to our website Events calendar.

    I think there was a question raised at the meeting about the type of costume to wear at FanBoys if one wished to dress up.

    This is perfectly acceptable IMHO!

    Any word if this will make it straight to DVD? If so, we could have a Fanboys TV night somewhere.

    But hey, I just got a reply from Weinstein. They said,


    [blockquote]"Thank-you for contacting us. We are taking all requests into consideration and we will keep you and your fellow fanboys posted. Thanks again."[/blockquote]

    To those of you lucky enough to be in the cities or close enough to drive to see the movie do the rest of us a favor and sell out every show. The rest of us want to see it on the big screen and not rent it!!
